Hey everyone, I came onto the forum to share a bit about my story and I'm glad to say also my transformation and success over a long journey. I struggled with an addiction to masturbation and porn that started to take hold in my early 20's. By my late 20's this had become more of an issue as I started to get more into what I would consider distributing pornography mostly related to humiliation porn. The way that I felt about myself and the way I felt around women was extremely distressing for me. I also some experiences of paid sex during this time which was a major source of shame for me. I went through a very long and painful process of changing my conditioning and the way I felt about myself. This started with moving to lesser and lesser damaging pornography and masturbation habits which then led into NoFap. I successfully went on a many long runs of NoFap which really helped me to start rebooting my sexuality and my mind. From here I started to move more into shaping, channeling and transmuting my sexual energy into a healthy place. Although I am still in the process of doing this and I believe I will continue this indefinetly, I feel like I am at a point where I have a very healthy sexual drive and functioning, my sexual thoughts are what I consider to be very natural and pure, my self-esteem and self-worth are at a very high level, I have seen very significant benefits in terms of my energy levels, motivation, clarity of thought, and also my interactions with women are very enjoyable and I have noticed that more women have an attraction to me. My interest in coming on this forum is to give back from what I have learned from my own experiences. I still do suffer from shameful feelings and sharing and helping others struggling in this process I hope will also help me in alleviating these feelings for myself as well.
